Canvas app for iPad quirks

I am currently the lead integration person for Canvas in my school and I hit a snag yesterday during a presentation.  Teachers were to view a video and then answer 5 questions pertaining to the video.  I had the video and a link to the questions on a Page.  When they clicked the link to the questions, they were able to see the questions in the app, still in Canvas, but were unable to type directly in Canvas.  Teachers that were using Canvas through their web browser were able to click on the "Submit Assignment" button and then choose from some options.  I told them to use the "Text Entry" to make it easier as far as submitting.  But those in the Canvas app were not given that option.  I came up with a work-around of having them copy and paste the questions from the app into either Notes or Google Docs.  Can students not complete an assignment that they view in the app without having to open another app to type their answers?  I hope this question makes sense!
